You know, I was thinking more about this and I will work to see if I can
add an option to change the view from title view to Recording group view
and adjust the display accordingly. The current setting to "save the
group on exit" should apply just as easily to this view. Ideally we can
map a key to toggle the views or use the 1/2 keys to switch between
them. If the user has the "category as recording group" box checked it
should also include those in the list as well.
I think that should accomplish my goal and be more functional across the
board. I noticed in the settings today there is a "save on exit" option
that i had checked which was causing my dislike of the feature as it
relates to the wife and kids.
